Almost impossible to do without special tools. Engine must be removed from car. After resurfacing heads and block, a GM repair kit consisting of special block inserts, glue, tap and wrench (not a standard tap wrench) and some means of measuring # of degrees of turn on a wrench. I had to have it done on my '96 and it took the shop 2 full days and cost approx. $2500 if that is all you have done. Since my car had 100,000+miles I also replaced the alt and starter while I was at it for approx. $3000. Not cheap. but less than a replacement car that would compare to the ride and driveability! Check on the possibility on replacing the motor if you ran hot. It was cheaper to replace the motor than fix it, also the GM repair kit only works if your block is strong enough (gets weak when run hot) Less time to replace motor.
